"Leadership in one form or another falls squarely on the shoulders of every Christian whether a bishop, priest, religious or lay Catholic. Ignoring this simple truth comes with a heavy cost; all of humanity suffers. Growing the capacity of authentic leadership within the Catholic
Church will increase the effectiveness of the church’s mission…to save souls."MSG. Michael M. Cutone
Considered par excellence on the topic of leadership; a straightforward and classic statement regarding the understanding and application of authentic leadership. Drawing from the teachings of Christ, the Gospels, the lives of the saints and lessons learned during 23 years of service with the US Army Special Forces (Green Berets). MSG Michael Cutone masterfully unfolds a powerful treatise on leadership that clearly identifies ten principles. Further he challenges all of us; "Who among us will answer the call? Who among us will pick up and labor under the weight, the ridicule, the hardship, and the glory of carrying your cross towards Christ Crucified? "
“Lord, if your people still have need of my services, I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me continue to hold the battle line in defense of your camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength. I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command, I will fight beneath your banner. Amen”

The military does not have the exclusive rights to leadership, but it has formulated over time a systematic, comprehensive approach to leadership....Lead by example, Integrity, Courage, and Selfless service. His treatise on Leadership encapsulates and embodies the leadership of Christ. This soldier’s journey as a leader began 23 years ago while attending and graduating the US Army Special Forces Course.

The book is outstanding and I am going to buy more and give them out to
my prayer groups. I had a conversion story similar to yours. I am a retired
